drank Shamrock Tea by 52teas

This tea is quite an enigma! I stole a sip from a friend a week ago and was awash in fake vanilla flavouring. Because of this I was hesitant when I brewed this up for my morning cup, knowing I wouldn’t get a chance to finish whatever I chose.

Reader? I loved it. I must have done something right with it because it was minty with just an undercurrent of vanilla and the green tea flavour was still there. I was very happy with the half a cup I got to drink before dashing out for work.

Which of course meant I came home to a half cup of room temperature tea. Curious since mint teas are usually pretty good even if left sitting, I tried it. And wow, cold this was so gross. I don’t foresee myself making this into an iced tea anytime soon! But hot, it was delightful.

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.


My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
